The thing that bothers me with this tower is the constant presence of that black window washing crane.

Given the size of the building, there will probably never be a lengthy period when the window washing mechanism is not in use and stored out of sight. So why is it painted black, the most visible possible color? In some shots, it's more prominent than the spire. Why not paint it a dull white or grey so that it blends in more with the sky? (Ironically they made that choice for the spire, which you would normally want to be highly visible.) And why does this crane have to stick up so high? It looks like a giant insect perched up there.

Trump looks ridiculously short in some of these shots, it's bizarre.

It´s because the photo has been take in front of the tower, not far away from it.. so its always the same when you take a photo of a tower it looks short if you are just next to the tower...

Incorrect, the tower looks short in this image because of the distortion caused by the lens in an attempt the capture the entire tower. When referring to perspective and distance, the closer you are to an object the bigger and taller it seems, the more distant the smaller it appears. Other factors that effect perception of height are proportion in comparison to near by objects. Such as smaller towers next to a taller one.

This shot, taken by cbotnyse, shows just how tall Trump really is.

it's the same height as the old WTC, so it's not that short

Trump Tower looks to me like a modern version of Sears (Willis?) Tower. I like it.

That's obviously great skyscraper, but what's irritating me, I see a lot of similarities with Burj Dubai and that's not quite what I've been expecting.
